We involve and support a diverse community in participating, skill-building, exchanging ideas, developing resources and making data science inclusive as they collaborate with each other. Our community members are learners, students, educators, researchers, policymakers, professionals, funders and more! We look forward to welcoming you to the community! - Explore the [GitHub repository]( - Read the book online: :ballot_box_with_check: Quick links --- - [About the project]( - [_The Turing Way_ book]( - [GitHub repository]( - [Introductory YouTube Videos]( - [5 min intro video - Kirstie Whitaker]( - [6 min 2020 update video - Malvika Sharan]( ==Job Opportunities== --- Lots of job opportunities to work at The Alan Turing Institute: Particularly, community manager positions at The Alan Turing Institute will work closely with *The Turing Way* team and project will be announced regularly!
